DuPont Titanium Technologies to raise prices of all TiO2 grades

DuPont Titanium Technologies announced a price increase for all DuPont Ti-Pure titanium dioxide grades sold in the Euro markets of Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey, Greece and North Africa.

Effective April 15, 2008, prices for all titanium dioxide grades will increase 80 Euros per tonne in the Euro markets of Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey, Greece and North Africa.

This increase is in addition to prior announcements for these markets and is made necessary because of the very rapid increase in the costs of raw materials, energy and transportation.

These costs continue to negatively impact DuPont's titanium dioxide business and hence the need for announcing this new price increase.

DuPont Titanium Technologies is the world's largest manufacturer of titanium dioxide, serving customers globally in the coatings, paper and plastics industries.

The company operates plants at DeLisle, Miss.; New Johnsonville, Tenn.; Edge Moor, Del.; Altamira, Mexico; and Kuan Yin, Taiwan; all of which use the chloride manufacturing process.

The company also operates a plant in Uberaba, Brazil, for finishing titanium dioxide and a mine in Starke, Fla. Technical service centers are located in Uberaba, Brazil; Mexico City, Mexico; Mechelen, Belgium; Moscow, Russia; Kuan Yin, Taiwan; Ulsan, Korea; Wilmington, Del.; and Shanghai, China, to serve the European, Middle Eastern, United States, Asian and Latin America markets.

DuPont is ascience company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere.

Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture, nutrition, electronics, communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel.
